Subject: Surprisingly interesting
Subject: Run-of-the-mill show
Now with this well-mixed SBD, this is just an average show in the middle of the saloon band era of early 1971. No real exploration present. Sadly, it's also the last Easy Wind. It's still better than any show during the Vince era.
The band really needed Keith to liven things up again.
Subject: Great set list
Subject: my first
Subject: Great Sound, Sloppy Performance
With the possible exceptions of Morning Dew and Casey Jones, I wouldn't listen to any of these tracks twice. The band never seems to gel on this night, and they're particularly unsynchronized during Hard to Handle and Easy Wind.
I queued this up because I've long enjoyed the next night, and Mr. Miller's remaster of that show (#110185) is excellent. Don't get suckered by the beautiful sound of this tape. With so many other great Dead shows to listen to, this lackluster performance isn't worth your time.
Subject: fine form 4/71
4/5 gets hotter with Going Down and Love Light.
Subject: Holy Jerry lead
These Manhattan center shows just have the perfect sound. The boys are on in early 1971.
Interesting end to Easy Wind.
Subject: bass ackwards
Sound is great, the description is way out of wack.
Subject: really amazing
Subject: "Louder, with a bit more bottom too ........"
But, back to the music - we all know the show in question (we do, don't we?) and it's not in question (questions, questions, questions - why no answers?)and so any enhancement in the 'presentation' (Miller or otherwise) is just more icing on an already very nice cake.
And the chit-chat, well without resurrecting the 'to matrix or not to matrix' argument - no, we don't argue here, let's say "discussion" instead - well all those between song conversations, audience participation (calls for Dark Star), flubs and whatever, well (2) they just add more character and make our favourite shows even better.
Thank you 'Mr. Charlie' and also thank you for the surprise birthday present you also just put up - the much improved Portland 23/02/71 show (apols for the UK date format) - yes, much superior - bye bye to the tape flips in 'Me & Bobby McGee' and Wharf Rat. You are a real leg end !!!
Subject: "Louder! With a bit more bottom too...."
This sounds great.
Subject: Thank You Charlie
Subject: Really nice, warm show
